Classic Irish Recipes (With A Couple American Twists!)

If you'd rather sit by a roaring fire than don sparkling sunglasses shaped like four-leaf clovers, these traditional Irish dishes may be more your speed. For a St. Patrick's Day feast that reminds you of the old country, try one of these classics ... with no green food in sight. We've got all the greats to take you from sun up to sun down: start your day with an Irish breakfast, have a toasted ham and cheese sandwich for lunch (don't forget a side of Coleman's mustard), then break out the dutch oven for a hearty Irish stew, served with soda bread and colcannon, of course.

Guinness-infused Dishes

Beer is a regular part of any St. Patty's Day outing, but if you really want to make the occasion special, pair it with a few of these fantastic Guinness-infused dishes. From two-hander Guinness pub burgers to rich stews, there's something here to make everyone happy. And of course, if you're not a fan of this particular Irish stout beer, swap it out for a more preferred brew. It'll change the flavor, but it'll still be delicious.
